TRAGEDY STRIKES LAKEWOOD: Two Fatalities In Jackson Crash, Including Four-Year-Old Boy

It is with great anguish that Lakewood Alerts informs you of the tragic petirah of Shmuel Brog z”l, who was niftar following a horrific accident in Jackson today. He was just shy of fifth birthday.

Shmuel z”l is the son of R’ Avrumy and Ayala Brog. R’ Avrumy is well known as one of the directors of Oorah’s summer camp, The Zone. His grandfather is Harav Yisroel Brog, the rosh yeshiva of Tiferes Avigdor in Wickliffe, Ohio.

Shmuel z”l, was riding in a van when it collided with another vehicle on E. Veterans near Cleveland Court. The young boy was critically injured, and went into traumatic arrest.

Hatzolah paramedics were able to regain a heartbeat at the scene and rushed him to Jersey Shore University Medical Center, where he was tragically niftar a short time later.

The levaya is taking place at 1:45 PM on Friday at the Lakewood Bais Olam, 782 E. 7th Street. It will not be inside the Chapel.

The driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash also went into traumatic arrest. She was rushed to Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus in Lakewood, where she was sadly pronounced dead. She was later identified as 40-year-old Carolina Bonilla.
